Lithography skill development

After some trial and error I’ve begun to develop more printmaking skills. Lithography is something I’ve been wanting to learn for some time. Watching You Tube videos and making many errors I’ve taught myself lithography using polyester plates. One day I would like to try stone lithography. In the meantime I can see the potential of the technique and looking forward to being more experimental.

Updates

Many events are being cancelled even up to Christmas so sadly there is only one exhibition I can currently rely on. Organised by Uk Artists, I will be exhibiting alongside other artists at The Royal Priors in Leamington Spa from 1st-20th September, open everyday 11-5pm. I am showing work I have yet to exhibit and some new browser work too.

New work

I thought I would share some of my new work.
I have two events in the calendar for September & they still appear to be going ahead.
My efforts are therefore focused on developing some of my themes in preparation.

Warwickshire open studios

Like many events in 2020 Warwickshire open studios have been cancelled due to covid 19.
By now my exhibition would be in situ, so I thought I would share some of the pieces of work I’d have on display

Skills developement

One of the positives to lockdown is that I have more free time. I’m allowing myself the space to make mistakes and try out new ways of working. I’m also doing more printmaking. I have been practising collagraph, mezzotint & dry point etching. Unfortunately, it’s more difficult to acid etch from home so I’m limited to printing off existing plates.
